LNP hopefuls for Redcliffe seat to go head-to-head

THREE people will go head-to-head next week in the hope of securing LNP pre-selection in the vacant state seat of Redcliffe.

The Redcliffe by-election will be held early next year after former member Scott Driscoll sensationally quit politics after it was revealed he and his wife had lied to State parliament over their business dealings.

The three candidates Kerri-Anne Dooley, Rae Frawley and Sean Gordon will learn if they have been successful when the party meets on Wednesday, December 18.

A date for the by-election, in which former Federal Member for Petrie Yvette D'Ath will run for Labor, is yet to be announced.
